"Results in....."


Austin, PK
          

Guys

Need advice. Usually I shoot in Auto WB in raw with manual exposure and spot metering.
Tonight i am doing a wedding with a golden stoffen omnibounce on flash and plan to use Matrix metering instead of spot.
are the changes recommended for indoors i.e having a golden omnibounce or should I use lumiquest pocket bounce? Also, should I use Flash WB or Auto WB setting on D70? Do you think ISO 400 would be better choice for indoor shots.

I personally think that shooting indoors in RAW doesnt have that much of an advantage as compared to shooting outdoors in RAW.

Thanks for your input.
Irfan

I can't comment as to which to use regarding omnibounce or lumiquest as I never used either one, but: White balance flash vs Auto I find not much difference (although some claim auto is a nightmare) but generally I find white balance flash to show warmer skin tones and auto to show a little cooler skin tones. There is no right or wrong here, it's what you like best. When doing weddings I always use ISO 400 indoors. I use ISO 200 when outdoors.

That's not quite right. RAW mean you can do a lot of post processing easier and more efficient than JPEG. If you are shooting RAW than WB setting is not much a problem. Both Flash WB and Auto WB will serve well. If lighting is sufficient better stick with lower ISO setting. Never use one of the golden omnibounce or lumiquest pocket bounce so no idea.
